Showcase: Heather Froome

THE ART EDIT TEAM TAKES A CLOSER LOOK AT THESE ARTWORKS

The work: Heather Froome, Green apples and hay. Oil on canvas, 20 x 20cm.

Rendering the shifting light and ambience of the sky in paint is often a challenging task, yet by utilising the luscious texture inherent in oil paint, Heather Froome has mastered it. In Green apples and hay, Heather applies thick swathes of colour with a palette knife, conjuring a sense of movement and life as the lavender sky settles on a lush green-apple-coloured scenery below. You can almost feel the earth’s latent energy through the texture of the paint, with her many layers pushing the vista into the viewer’s space. By abstracting her Coal Coast New South Wales landscape, the artist conveys the changeability of nature, producing scenes that are at once familiar and mysterious.
